The Sunday School and Confirmation List

The introduction has been adapted from the Preface to the "Speculum Gregis". The pupil lists that follow are written inside the back cover of the "Speculum Gregis" in the hands of Rev Francis Fulford and Rev R S B Sandilands.

- List of Boys who have left Sunday School April 1842 to December 1846.
- List of Persons Confirmed June 22 1844.
- List of Persons not Proceeding to Confirmation.

"The Sunday School is held in the Church; and commences at about 9 o'clock. I take about one half the boys and James Lee, the Schoolmaster, the other half. I stay with them 'till the bell begins to ring, at half past ten [for the morning Church service]. In the

  afternoon the School opens rather before two and I stay 'till the bell begins about half past two [for the afternoon service].

"Mrs Fulford teaches the girls on the Sundays, assisted by Elizabeth Wood, who keeps a little day-school. Mr Gape [the owner of three Croydon farms] always gives me Five Pounds in June for the Sunday School, with which I pay Lee and Elizabeth Wood, who have a one shilling a Sunday each, commencing for their year from Michaelmas. I find fire in the winter, when necessary, for the Sunday School. We always give the School children some plum-pudding at Christmas, and a tea-drinking with games and sports in the field in July, and Books as rewards to a few in each class at Christmas.

"We take a few pence from any of the children that like to pay it every Sunday as their savings - to buy themselves clothes etc. (pencilled note: a very useful thing.)"

This concluding paragraph is an simple appeal for your help and support in saving All Saints, the parish church where Francis Fulford was Rector. In recent years, Croydon's church has received generous support from English Heritage, the Cambridge Historic Churches Trust and the Historic Churches Trust. Further support and   financial help has also been received from local organisations, friends and individual parishioners. Indeed it has needed a huge community effort to keep this historic medieval church open. Further extensive works are required if the future of this beautiful building is to be secured.
